Before becoming a Pulitzer-Prize winning writer, Elizabeth Bishop lived with her Gammie and Pa on a rural farm, learning to walk, to read and write, to sing hymns, and to catch bumblebees in foxglove flowers. This visual and lyrical feast tells the story of Bishop’s childhood days, including snippets of the iconic poet’s own poetry and prose and charming collage-style artwork. A love letter to words, this book shows young readers to see the poetry all around them.
